On December 30, 2011, we discussed here the case of the female medical student from Tennessee who was arrested for illegal possession of a handgun in New York City, and was looking at a mandatory three years or more, plus a felony conviction that would have destroyed her career and her life.  Of course, in many big cities in more enlightened parts of our country, her Tennessee carry permit would have rendered her perfectly legal.  Read about it Here.

This leaves at least one defendant with an out of state permit, who has turned down a similar plea offer, facing charges for much the same thing.

I haven’t heard if Mayor Bloomberg has recanted his outrageous public accusation that this young woman had cocaine in her purse when arrested after declaring her firearm, or rendered a much-deserved apology. The substance in question turned out to be powdered aspirin.

A reminder to all who read this, who go about lawfully armed, and travel: the best, most up to date guide to state-by-state gun laws is

And, another reminder: a bill that would force any state where carry permits are issued to recognize permits issued by other jurisdictions has already passed the House and is now in the Senate.  I believe it has the best chance of passing that any such legislation has ever had, or is likely to have in the immediate future.  For goodness sake, contact  your Senator and ask him or her to support it.  It was discussed in my last blog entry, immediately below this one.
